Our Signature Events

Barnstable Charitable Foundation produces signature events throughout the year to support local nonprofits that in turn, support our community. By joining forces and working collectively, our beneficiaries can produce high quality events that in turn raise money to allow these organizations the opportunity to fulfill their important missions.

Bike, Boat and Bake


The Gasp is now entering its 29th year ! The Gasp remains a premier fundraising event for the Cape Cod Community, as well as the best day ever for our participants. The ride features a 55 mile trip from Sandwich to Provincetown on your bike, this year with a new route to maximize your riding comfort and safety! In Provincetown, enjoy a lobster bake and a shower at the finish line before you hop on a trolley to catch the ferry, where we will return you to Sandwich to pick up your bike

Nov 21- Dec 12, 2020


A festive way to close out the year!

Just outside Ten Pin Eatery and across from Santa’s Village at the Cape Cod Mall, lavishly decorated trees loaded with gifts will be on display.  Tree Bucks are sold for $10 each and can be used to vote for the best tree.  Each tree will be given to one of their lucky voters on December 14th when the Spectacle draws to a close. Selected voters need not be present at the time of the drawing.

Each tree is sponsored and created by a different local non-profit organization.  All proceeds from their Tree Bucks received as a vote go directly to that nonprofit.
